There are quite a number of things to see within the museum complex, and not just the terra cotta warriors. This includes an impressive excavated tomb that you can visit, a "Liu Ancestral Hall" that pays tribute to the luminaries of the Liu clan (including Liu Bang, the founder of the Han Dynasty), and a number of Buddhist temples.

The statues are about 60cm high. They are not as big as the Xian warriors but they are still amazing. They are in the middle of the lake in the Han Dynasty Culture Scenic Area. I just wished there where more statues.

If your in Xuzhou and have 1/2 day this is worth a visit, set in a very peaceful park the Terracotta warriors are worth a look, they are miniature but still amazing to think they are over 2000yrs old and very well preserved. Some signs are in English but better if you have a translator with you.

The terracotta warriors museum (archeological dig site really) is an amazing visit. Visitors are able to get great shots of most of the warriors, as well as see the restoration process. The scope of the find is mind boggling and is worth the time and money spent to visit. Plan on spending about half a day there, and if it's... More

This was incredible, not to mention huge. The crowds can be intense, so be aware of what's going on culturally in the country before you decide to go. It's also worth going with a tour guide. They'll be able to get you around in the most efficient way, and it'll even let you skip some of the lines!

Though these terracotta warriors are smaller in scale than the lifesize Xian ones, they are just as impressive and beguiling to see.

I loved seeing the terracotta warriors. It's amazing to think they survived for over 2000 years in the mud and that they were only discovered in the 1980s. The Chinese government has done a great job of preserving and presenting them in the exact location in which they were found. One row of warriors has been completely excavated, another is... More

Spent around half a day strolling through the beautiful gardens with the highlight being the Terracotta Warriors displays. If you are going to Xuzhou have a look, it is certainly worth while.

We visited the Warriors as part of a group trip to China with Gate 1 Travel. This is a must see if you are in China our guide explained so much about the site and surrounding area including the Emperors tomb you drive past on the way which most people wouldn't realise.

These are doll sized and include a whole assortment of characters not just warriors like the Xi'an museum. The museum is located inside the Western Han park. You can walk into the park no problem, but if you want to visit the museum you need to buy a ticket. The only place that sells tickets (as far as I could... More
